It is not official yet, but all signs indicate that Juventus are preparing for life after Alex Sandro. The Brazilian defender is keen to leave the Serie A giants this summer and with a potential Premier League move on the cards for him, it seems Juventus are already looking at potential replacements for the former Porto star.

And according to recent information coming out of Italy, specifically Rai Sport, Juventus have already identified a possible replacement since they are keen to submit a summer bid for Bayern Munich fullback Juan Bernat.

The former Valencia star has been with Bayern Munich since 2014, but he is not exactly happy at the Bundesliga side. Aside from the fact that there has not been any potential talk of a new contract for the Spaniard, Bernat will likely have to settle for a secondary role at Bayern next season due to the presence of both David Alaba and Rafinha at the left-back role.

Bernat is not the only alternative Juventus are considering, however, as current FC Barcelona and former AS Roma fullback Lucas Digne has also emerged as a possibility. But Bernat is reportedly the prefered option for the coaching staff, and they would be open to submit a bid in the €12-€15 million range.

The 25-year-old left-back, who can also operate as a winger, has one year left in his current deal, and has amassed 76 Bundesliga appearances, scoring 3 goals in total. for the Bavarians throughout his career.
